These Headphones Create Superior Sound and a Quiet Mind
Music fans missing a regular calendar of gigs will find a lifeline in Iris Flow, headphones made to mimic the sound quality of in-person performances of all kinds. Created by the London tech start-up Iris, which is backed by Queen drummer Roger Taylor, the device features a patented algorithm that restores complex spatial information that is inevitably lost in the recording process (and often results in flat, lifeless audio), allowing users to take in sounds as if they were happening right in front of them. Not only do these amplified details make for an immersive experience, they also stimulate neurological pathways in the brain by requiring it to subconsciously piece together the music. It’s a meditative, engaging exercise that’s ideal for getting into the zone—for work, exercise, or a momentary escape into sonic bliss.
